Step 1:

Plan the layout for your BBQ and fire pit. Consider the equipment that you will use like the fridge and grill. If you are going to make some counter space where people can sit, then consider it adding to the layout.

Step 2:

Once you have your layout done, start laying some blocks. Using a trowel and cement mortar, build the block until just above your waistline. Consider your height or the one who will mostly use it in setting your countertop. When doing a block, always run your string line from one end of the block to the other end as you want it to be even to the top of the line.

Step 3:

Once you are done with the blocks you can create the concrete countertop. Consider an overhang on the countertop if you are going to have the bar area. First, you need to build the mold and the support frame. Then mix and pour the concrete into the mold. Let it cure. Once dry, remove the mold and sand it down to have a smooth finish. Then paint it to your desired color.
